What you’ll get – our culture

Culture is very, very important to us. So much so that we have published our culture code online so that you can see exactly what it means to us. We’d highly recommend that you take a look so that you can see what we offer and how we’re different from other agencies.

We also do a lot for your development, here are just a few of them:

  • Regular personal development and concrete plans on how you can progress and grow within the company
  • An annual training and technology budget to use as you see fit
  • Unlimited, free books and audiobooks to help you learn and develop
  • Opportunities to speak at industry events and our own MKGO event
  • Mental health coaching and support thanks to our partnership with Sanctus
  • Up to two days a year to use for volunteering days with charities

As you’ll see below, we offer some great perks and benefits, but it’s our culture which we believe truly makes us stand out. Any old agency can offer great perks, but they become normal very quickly. A great culture will push you and improve you for years to come. Take out the perks, and a great culture will still remain.

We offer a bunch of great perks too

We love to look after our team and invest as much as we can in giving them everything they need to do a great job. Whilst perks aren’t everything, we do offer a lot to our team including:
